Suggested Donation ($20.00)
Recipient of Christianity Today's "2005 Award of Merit" (i.e., 2nd place for "Book of the Year" in Apologetics) as a book that brings "understanding to people, events, and ideas that shape evangelical life, thought, and mission."
"For over a quarter of a century, Gary R. Habermas has focused his research on the resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. And for some time now, Gary has been recognized by myself and others as the top expert on the topic. A former student of Gary's, Mike Licona, is also a leading 'resurrection scholar' today. From these two come a tool that is broad in its scope, thorough and detailed in its depth, providing the fruit of considerable intellect and vigorous labor on this topic. Combined with a very creative style that is user friendly to the learner, I know of no other source quite like it. It may be the most thorough defense of the historicity of the resurrection." -- J. P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
"Having known Gary Habermas' detailed and long standing work on the resurrection and the history of its interpretation, it is a pleasure to see not only this compilation of many years of study, but also research on the subject by Mike Licona. When one couples this volume with the recent work of N.T. Wright on resurrection one has to say that there is now a formidable intellectual gauntlet that has been thrown down, supported by meticulous research and powerful arguments, that challenges any view of the Easter events that does not include the bodily resurrection of Jesus. I highly recommend this rigorous and vigorous treatment of this subject which in so many ways is the most crucial one for Christian faith and praxis." -- Ben Witherington, III, Prof. of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary
"These pages examine Jesus' Resurrection from every conceivable viewpoint: the powerful evidence that it did occur, the strident objections that it did not, and the tools of logic necessary in deciding which is true. Habermas and Licona marshal the testimony of the primary sources in admirable fashion. To my knowledge, the chapters addressing naturalistic theories are the most comprehensive treatment of the subject anywhere. This Summa offers compelling proof that the central event in human history did occur." --Paul L. Maier, Russell H. Seibert Professor of Ancient History, Western Michigan University
"This compelling book is the most comprehensive defense of Jesus' resurrection anywhere. You won't find a more thorough treatment of naturalistic theories. Its extensive endnotes by themselves are worth the price of the book! And you'll enjoy using the innovative CD to help you master the material. If you're interested in knowing the evidence for the resurrection and sharing it with others, then you must read this book!" -- Lee Strobel, author, The Case for Christ
"The historical resurrection of Jesus is truly the foundation of the Christian faith. Mike and Gary have created a phenomenal resource, that is both user-friendly and up-to-date, to equip believers to defend this crucial issue and to apply it to their personal lives. I highly recommend this resource to both the scholar and lay-person." -- Josh McDowell, author, The New Evidence that Demands a Verdict
"There is nothing like this on the market. It is interesting, engaging, and crucial material." -- Norman L. Geisler, President, Southern Evangelical Seminary
"The resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is the cornerstone of Christianity. Gary Habermas and his protégé Mike Licona have distinguished themselves as leading experts on the evidence for this all important event."
"Undoubtedly, the resurrection of Jesus is the primary testimony of the early church, but it is missing in many contemporary evangelistic programs. This book with its innovative software will not only entertain, but it will help us re-educate the church about the central message of the church. This is one set of materials that I can highly recommend." --L. Russ Bush, Senior Professor of Philosophy of Religion, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary
"The world has gone computer-mad and there is nothing as addictive as interactive CDs. My wife is appalled at the time I myself spend at the console (both Mac and PC) engaged in just such activity. Defenders of historic Christian faith need to capture this area for Jesus Christ, and that is exactly the function of Habermas and Licona's THE CASE FOR THE RESURRECTION OF JESUS. It provides an ideal opportunity for computer novices and computer experts, whatever their age, to interact with the solid case for the resurrection of Jesus Christ--and thus to face the necessity of making a personal decision concerning the truth of the entire Christian message. The CD's combination of the serious and the entertaining is a solid accomplishment." --John Warwick Montgomery, Prof. Of Apologetics and Law, Trinity College and Theological Seminary
"by far the best teaching tool on the topic." --Ronald Tacelli, Assoc. Prof. of Philosophy, Boston College
"Fantastic stuff--really accessible. I have been looking for a vehicle like this for some time. And now I have it." --Richard Davis, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Tyndale University College & Seminary
"Probably the best case for the resurrection made yet." --Steve Parrish, Assistant Professor of Philosophy/Collection Management Librarian, Concordia University (Ann Arbor)
"With the inclusion of a detailed outline of the arguments contained in this book, the notes taken to write the book (listed by individual chapter),and the bibliography of other reference books used in this one, there is an limitless supply of Bible studies and/or sermons. What pastor could not use this book? This book is by far one of the most useful books on the Christian faith." -Tammy Hornbeck, Christian Book Previews.com
